Music in the ice box?
As is often the case with this magazine, there's a short story included. I always find these brief stories to be interesting. This one is about a couple who pet their records into an ice box to improve their sound.
No, not a fridge. But a wooden cabinet that used ice to keep things cold. An almost forgotten invention these days, yet once very commonplace.
